Police are looking for a man who they say robbed a man and a woman at gunpoint early Saturday in front of their home in Pembroke Pines.

The incident happened at around 1:43 a.m. at a home in the Cedarwoods community, the Pembroke Police Department said.

A preliminary investigation revealed that two victims — a man and a woman — arrived home and were approached by the suspect as they walked towards their front door.

The suspect pointed a black handgun at both victims and demanded the male victim’s phone and watch. The man complied, and the suspect fled the area on foot.

As the suspect was running from the location, the male victim chased after him, and the suspect turned around and fired two rounds, missing both times.

The male victim saw the suspect get into the backseat of an awaiting vehicle which then fled the area.

Police estimate the suspect to be a 20- to 30-year-old male with a slim build.
